My bump // Faust Park // St. Louis, MO

Hey ya'll. Did you know I was pregnant? Well, I am... and he (yes, another he!) is coming soon! He just happens to be due 3 years and 3 days to the day of Finn's due date. Finn arrived two weeks late, so there is a big chance this guy won't share Finn's birthday. So we think. 

I was determined to get some maternity shots since I didn't do my monthly bump update like I did with Finn (check my instagram feed for the orange wall series of my growing bump with Finn). I really wanted to do the photoshoot at 6 months pregnant, but you know how life just slips away in a whirlwind. I finally got our family motivated to get it done at 7 months pregnant.. so here I am, in all my third trimester glory! I recruited my Dear Husband to take the photos at Faust Park, just outside of St. Louis, MO. It is an adorable rural park, with barns and open land. Thank goodness Tom is an artist/designer/art director and has experience with photography as well. Don't you think he did a pretty kick as job? I art directed him, set up the camera for him, and he took over from there.

Photo credit to Tom White (the photos with me in them). The ones with all three of us are thanks to my nifty new MeFOTO tripod (I got the green one). The ones with me not in them are of course by me!

So here I am letting you know that I will be on maternity leave from now until about March 1st, just in time for spring blossoms. I will be slaving away for (and snuggling with) my second baby boy all winter. I am excited to be surrounded by boys... I was never a girly girl. So, bring on more trucks, cars, trains, buses and legos! I am so excited & will of course post photos of Baby #2 as soon as I can.
